Kádár Étkezde (Kádár Diner) – Simply Authentic Hungarian Lunch in Budapest

Eating at Kadar Etkezde in Budapest is partly dining partly submerging into decades old Hungarian culture: yes, it is a simple eatery with a very diverse clientele all united in the joy of eating something authentic, well-known, made well, without any fuss. As Frommer’s puts it (placing the eatery in the Jewish walking tour) Kádár Étkezde “is a simple local lunchroom serving a regular clientele ranging from young paint-spattered workers to elderly Jews.” The sholet is genuine. The worn-down charm likewise.

If you want to know more about the social phenomenon of Kadar Etkezde, this is a nice description made by Dumneazu. If you are specifically interested in Jewish places and attractions in Budapest, I suggest the Jewish Budapest map.

  1. I liked the article about the Kádár Étkezde, but the address is not entirely correct. The postal code is 1072, since the Klauzál tér is in the VIIth district, and not in the Vth

    I know this is an older post, but since it’s currently found by google on the first page, and other sites are also incorrect, maybe it’s worth correcting for all those relying on google searches.

      Thank you, buttler. I have updated the post code for Kádár étkezde. Indeed, Klauzál tér in Budapest is 1072.

    Anna, Do you actually live in Budapest? Ex-Pat.? My husband and I will be in Budapest on Saturday, July 23, and Sun. July 24. I would love some “local” recommendations for restaurants that offer good food and perhaps some local entertainment that are not so “toursity”. Do you have time to give us some “not to miss” sites that are not included on our tour? I will be glad to give you our itinerary if you have time. Is there anything you would like from the states? One friend we made on our last trip to Germany wanted Fritos as he could not buy them in Germany. Please let me know.
    Thank you for your time and consideration.

My mom seemed to think otherwise, and was perfectly happy eating a flatbread sandwich at a café […]
